?Boylol'f steam oarriage, in London,
makes a railway for itself as it moves along.
Sections of railways are secured to the wheels
in suoh a manner that, as they revolve, section
after leetion ifl brought nnder tbe wheels and
held firm for a certain period, laying and tak
ing up a continuous, track for the wheels, at
the carriage moves along. The section rails
are broad tram plates with upturned flanges
oonneated to tbe felloes of the wheels by pins
working in ourved slots; and there are a few
teeth on the face of the wheels, and suitable
notches in the inner surface of the rails, so that
as the former revolve, the teeth take into the
notohes of the rails at proper intervals, and
thus shift and hold them undor the wheels
with perfect regularity.
E9 When railways were in thoir infancy
in England, it was supposed that they would
injure the eatatcs through which or near which
they ran, and the English Cabinet Minister,
Mr. Labouohare's father, received the compen
sation of one hundred and fifty thousand
dollars for an imaginary detriment of this sort.
After his death, his son, finding that thorewas
no injury to the estate from the vicinity of the
railway, but the contrary, refunded the one
hundred and fifty thousand dollars.

Presidont Hill entered ; leaning on - the
arm ot Dr. Bellows. lie is a man ot
about forty-five years, with light, Saxon
oomplexion and hair; deep blue eyes, full
of light. Ho is a little over five feet in
hi? lit, and rather stout than otherwise. Al
though his neat dress gives him an air of
greater respectability, fie looks like Horace
Greeley, with less stoop and moro hair. Our
only memory ot President inn lias Deen
hitherto an incident which occurred in 1854.
It was at a Couforonce of New England Uni
tarians, and some very eminent uivino was
giving an address, in which ha repeatedly
used the word "females." At last Mr. Hill
jumped up as ono who could stand it no
longer: "Mr. Chairman, I beg tho gontle-
muu s pardon, but will he not have the char
ity to say women. 'Female' is a physical
characteristic, signifying box." IIo quietly
sat down amid many gruttlied bearers.
Alter the exercises ot yesterday ovening,
which wero very croditablo and impressive,
Mr. Hill gave us bis address, and convinced
us that if he did not have, as tho papers
said, a copious stream of eloquonce, he had
a copious stream of good senBO. If ever thoro
was an address wnicn bore witn it tne grace
of modesty and simplicity, and tho strength
of granite, it was this. He is a powerful man,
a thinker and a Hnowor. ms inaugural gave
a sketch of a complete education, which
ho made to consist of 1, tho training
of the tenses; 2, that of tho intollect; 3, of the
feelings; 4, of the will. Prof. Leootnpto's
geneialization is 1, science; 2,urt; 3,roligion
This inaugural will, I make no doubt, be
given to the public; it is too good to be re
ported. Mr. Hill has been minister of a compara-t'-oly
Bmall society in Waltham for fourteen
years, and has refused many flattering induce
ments to leave them. He spoke with great
ieeling of the severity ot leaving them, lie
will for a while return to close up, gradually;
his relations and engagements with thorn, ere
coming here to roside permanently, though he
will stay until no sees his way dear.
Mr. Hill evinced great judgment by making
it his condition of acceptance, that the salaries
of all the itaoutty should be guarantood. Ibis
the Trustees of the College formally agreed to
do, on their own responsibility. It will, of
eourse. not fall upon th.tn, for already students
are pouring into Antioch, which, burn as it
was of a want, must be self-sustaining ; but it
shows how deep in all concerned is the love
of this college.
Tho only other items worthy of being men
tioned are, that Mr. Albert 1 earing, ot Boston,
of the Board of Trustees, resigned, in order
that Presulont Hill might take his place; and
Mr. P. A. Palmer, of New York, was elected
to the Board in President Mann's plaoe.

To-day, with favorable weather, the reooipts
would have been larger than yesterday, but
there are signs of rain, which will damage the

evident that this Pair will stand upon an equal
footing with any preceding one, in the faoe of

eonfessed is somewhat a damper upon this ex

The first editorial convention of the State
was held here yoBterday. Long John Went
worth, of Chicago, inado a glorious speech,
in which he gave somo wholesome advice to
the craft. Ho advised them to cease taking
care of politicians and other people, and
starving themselves and families. Ho did a
little self-glorification in illustrating his po
sition by setting himself out as an example.
He is one of the wealthiest men in Chicago.
Mr. Blaisdell, of Rockford, niado a capital
speech, in which be argued a higher standard
of excellence in the profession. Mr. Bond,
of the Mendota Obtener, argued tho action
of the coiiT ention in demanding of the State
Legislature increased attention to the ques

in regard to tho publication of tho laws.

REPORTED FOR THE PENNY PRESS.
New York, September 10. The JIruld't
Washington correspondent says:
General Harnoy sent troops to San Juan to
protect tbe white settlers from the savages,
who wore committing most atrocious mur-.
dcrs. Nothing inimical to tho British Gov-1
eminent was intended by such movement.
The j calousy of Gov. Douglass was needlessly
excited. No collision with tho British troops or sub
jects is apprehended by the Government.
The President was Secretary of State when
the boundary treaty was negotiated under
President Polk, and is perfectly familiar
with all the circumstances attending it. Ho
and Robert J. Walkor were the only mem
bers of Mr. Polk's Cabinet who opposed tho
49th parallel as the boundary.
They adhere to 64 degress and 40 minutes
at our just limits. No doubt need be enter
tained that the title to San Juan will be am
icably adjusted, as the President must be
perfectly aware of our rights, aud will ask
Tbe long connection of Govornor Douglass
with tho Hudson Bay Company doubtless
caused him to view all the country in that vicin
ity as under tbe jurisdiction and protection of
the British GovernmeDt,at least, if not actually

may havo rendered him excitablo in tamper

Advices reoeivod by the General Land Office
announce tho completion, on the 4th ult., of the
survey of the western boundary of Minnesota,
and the placing of tho oornor-stone at tho inter
section of the northern and western boundaries
of that State.
The timct't Washington dispatch says:
Much annoyance is felt here, both by the
EngliBh Legation and tho Secretary of Btate,
at the recent news from San Juan. The re
lations of the two Governments having be
come moBt cordial and friendly, it is hoped
the good sonso of both powers may prevent
any serious mischief in the promises.
It is understood that Mr. Wycko, the new
British Minister, takes out to Central Amer
ica positive instructions 10 propose a treaty,
which, if the Central Americans refuse to
accept, they will be held responsible by all
the world for prolonging nn unnatural state
of things between themselves on the one
hand, and England and America on the
other. Tho only wish of tho British Govern
ment, and a wish most anxiously felt, is to
come to a final understanding with tho United
States about Central American affairs.
Aerial Voyage to Europe.
New York, September 1 0. An aorial ship,
called the City of New York, intended for a
tians-Atlantio voyage, has beon in the oourse
of construction for some months past, in tho
vicinity of this city, and is now so nearly com
pleted that she. will be ready to undertake the
tnp in Uotobor. I be aeronaut who has ehargo
oS the enterprise is Mr. Lowo, of New Hamp
shire, who has made soveral successful ascen
sions. The dimensions of the ship an greator
ttan those of any balloon previously built.
T;e capacity of tho gas-receiver is seven bun
dled and twenty-five thousand cubic foet; the
aggregate hight of the balloon from the
vUve to tho bottom of the boat is upward of
three hundred foot, and the diameter one hun
drtd and thirty feet.
Mr. Lowe proposes to go direotly from Now
